DO NOT DONATE TO GOODWILL!! THEY ARE A FOR PROFIT COMPANY AND HELP NO ONE! If the Red Cross sends gives you a voucher and you take it to Goodwill, the Red Cross has to pay them. Yes, it's true. Goodwill's charter states NOTHING is to be given away for free. Nothing. If you're homeless and looking for a coat, Goodwill will not and can not give you one. The DAV will. The Salvation Army will. Good will is a company whose stock is publicly traded and each state is independent of the others. They have fifty CEOs and they all make salaries in the high six digits. PLEASE donate your stuff to a local charity, one that actually helps it's community!!

Now I take everything to Salvation Army.

Here are some other ideas:
